It's of course outstanding that the folk of Occupy Denver elected a border collie as their leader, but the reason why is almost as good:
[I]t began with Michael Moore. Stung by the documentarian's refusal to follow general assembly guidelines at his recent visit to Occupy Denver, the idea of electing a symbolic (if hairy) leader struck [Nesby] as an opportune statement. "(Moore) walked in with security and made everyone listen to him in the center of the circle with a bullhorn like he was our leader, even though he said out loud it's a leaderless movement," says Nesby [...]. He and a few fellow occupiers gathered to contradict the misconception that the group needs an end-all representative.
Ooh, that's gotta hurt. And for your amusement (always my top priority), here's Time's creative rendition of that same point:
Nesby decided to throw his furry friend’s proverbial hat in the ring after Michael Moore visited Occupy Denver and captivated him with the possibility of a symbolic leader.
“(Moore) walked in with security and made everyone listen to him in the center of the circle with a bullhorn like he was our leader, even though he said out loud it’s a leaderless movement,” told the Denver Westword.
Oh man, so close.
